Washington Watch: Democrats, abortion-rights groups score surge in donations after news that Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade


Democratic fundraising platform ActBlue said that small-dollar donors gave $12 million in the wake of news that the Supreme Court looks poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. That surge in giving coincides with predictions that the high court’s move could boost Democratic turnout in November’s midterm elections.

Donors gave that total to “abortion funds” and “reproductive-justice groups,” as well as Democratic candidates, ActBlue tweeted Wednesday. Their contributions came between around 8:30 p.m. Eastern Monday (when Politico first published a leaked draft majority opinion) and midnight Tuesday.
